Roma v Sampdoria Live
Roma will be aiming to get their Serie A campaign back on track this Saturday after two disappointing away draws in the last two weeks at the hands of Livorno (Dec 9) and Torino last weekend.
Games involving Sampdoria continue to entertain, there has been 27 goals in their last seven fixtures, a rate of virtually four per game. Yet while their home form has been good (except for that miserable 5-0 defeat to Milan) they have struggled on their travels, losing six of their eight away matches.
The home side can count themselves fortunate of escaping with a point against Torino last week and the sooner Francesco Totti recovers from his ankle problem the better for the side from the capital. Whether that will be this weekend is still unclear, but Roma cannot afford to lose much more ground after falling seven points behind runaway leaders Inter.
Sampdora will have former Roma player Antonio Cassano suspended for their trip to Stadio Olimpico. He was shown a yellow card in last weekend's game against Fiorentina for dissent, upon which he burst into tears as the realisation of missing this game was all too much.
It is a game which Roma must win if they are to apply some much needed pressure on the leaders and with Sampdoria only three points off sixth place, they too will be hoping to return home with something to show for their efforts.
